Bug#322571: RFP: libimage-exiftool-perl -- Perl library to read and write exif image tags

Package: wnpp

  Description     : Perl library to read and write exif image tags

ExifTool is a Perl module with an included command-line application
for reading and writing meta information in image files. It reads
EXIF, GPS, IPTC, XMP, GeoTIFF, ICC Profile and Photoshop IRB meta
information from JPG, JP2, TIFF, GIF, PNG, MNG, JNG, MIFF, EPS, PS,
images. ExifTool also extracts information from the maker notes of
many digital cameras by various manufacturers including Canon, Casio,
FujiFilm, Kodak, Minolta/Konica-Minolta, Nikon, Olympus/Epson,
Panasonic/Leica, Pentax/Asahi, Ricoh, Sanyo and Sigma/Foveon.

ExifTool writes EXIF, GPS, IPTC, XMP and MakerNotes meta information
to JPEG, TIFF, GIF, THM, CRW, CR2, NEF, PEF and DNG images.

This package is similar to the existing libimage-exif-perl, but is in
addition capable of writing exif tags to images, and is also
implemented in perl with no dependencies to a c library.

I have very little knowledge about packaging perl libraries, but
started with the build rules from libimage-exif-perl and made a draft
package available from <URL:http://developer.skolelinux.no/~pere/debian/>.
I would like someone with perl packaging skills to take over the
package, or some co-maintainer if no-one want to maintain this package
in debian.
